Now that Summer is in full swing and the temperature outside is comparable to that of a Mediterranean country the need to cool off in a nice cold bath will be very attractive to most. If you struggle with your mobility it can be very difficult to get in and out of baths unaided, luckily with a bath lift you can retain your independence. The Bath Lift works by gently lowering a user into the submerged bath water bringing them to the very bottom of the bath for maximum water submergence. This allows a user to get into the bath without needing to lower themselves into the bath, great for those who struggle with their movement or have balance problems.
Most bath lifts are designed with flaps on the side which allow them to fit into the majority of baths. This works by allowing the bath lift to descend and rise even where there are obstacles in your bath like railings or handles because the flap prevents the bath lift getting caught in these obstructions. Bath lifts are generally powered by a battery that can be taken away from the bath lift and charged separately when the device is not in use.
One of the lightest bath lifts on the market today is the Invacare Rio Bath Lift which weighs in at an astonishing 9.5 kg. Despite its low weight the Invacare Rio Bath Lift can still raise and lower a user up to 19 stone. Very easy to transport and assemble, without the need for any tools, the Invacare Rio Bath Lift is one of the lowest priced bath lifts available yet still comes with a number of features.
There are a number of great bath lifts to choose from which will help you cool off and relax after spending time in the summer heat. If you want to get the best possible bath lift why not call one of our discount mobility experts on 0800 111 4774.
